president of the united states. >> geraldo: mr. romney is right about the national polls showle him tied with the incumbent president. with six weeks left in the campaign ras musten at 46% and gallup at 47% show the men in a statistical dead heat. big picture the real clear politics ten day moving average has the president up by about three points, 48.1% to 44.8%. this is the real story that a trails in budgetmy trails in the swing states. down by about 8 in virginia. six in florida and down about seven in ohio, tom? >> well, he is down in these swing states and certainly i think given all of the data that we have if the election were held today obama would win. the election isn't being held today. six weeks. four debates. two more jobs reports coming out. the libya thing is hanging over the administration's head moving forward. a lot of time left. you're right, obama is ahead in crucial swing states. ahead by about a point and a half or two in the real clear politics average. in florida, the two main states that obama is leading that romney really has to be concerned about are virginia
. the united states drew a clear, red line. iran backed off. different lines can be drawn in the i iranian nuclear program. but to be credible, a line must be drawn first and foremost in one vital part of their program -- on their efforts to enrich uranium. let me explain why. any bomb consists of an explosive material and a mechanism to ignite it. the simplest example is fuse.der in and a you light the fuse and set off the gunpowder. the gunpowder is enriched uranium in regards to iran's nuclear program. the fuse is a detonator. for iran, amassing enough uranium is far more difficult than producing a nuclear fuse. for a country like iran, it takes many, many years to enrich uranium for a bomb. that requires thousands of center fuses spinning in tandem in big industrial plants. those are green plants are visible. they are still vulnerable. in contrast, iran could produce a record detonator, the fuse, in a lot less time. maybe under a year. maybe only a few months. the detonator can be made in a small workshop the size of the classroom. it might be difficult to find and target that workshop
. >> let me ask you about your life since 1975 first. when did you come to the united states? under what circumstances? >> i came first to. why? i stay as a refugee, like other vietnamese refugees. i stayed in camp pendleton for two months. >> california. >> yeah, in california. and then after that, i joined my family here in fair tax, virginia. so we live here for one year. and then one day i was invited by television, you know, showdown l.a., los angeles. so while in l.a., i met with some vietnamese friend. and then they convinced me that california have a better climate and whatever for me. so we decide to move down there in 1 1976. >> where do you live? >> well, we move around. first, we bought a house in huntington beach. with the money i make from the book. and from the speaking tour. i remember it was only $110,000 at that time, four-bedroom, nice house. i only had to put 10%, $12,000. and then i left huntington beach and then go to live in hong kong for almost three years. >> what years were those? >> 1988 to 1991. and then when i come back to america, we go to seattle for one ye
is from the united states when they have killed the highest official, the person who represents our country, in that country? >> well, without some intelligence, the united states has no idea who it is. i am told that the libyan government, such as it is, has promised the white house that it will assist in gathering the intelligence necessary to identify these people. but whether they will, or they won't, whether they can or they can't is something else again. remember that the government of libya has a domestic support among other people, radical islamists and other crazies and it's going to be extremely difficult for them to cooperate too much with the united states because they're on shaky ground. >> are we leaving everything up to the libyan government to search? i mean, you would think -- >> no. i mean we have the capability of using overhead assets, satellites -- >> drones? >> and some intelligence on the ground, too. but we are not very well situated in libya to try and get human intelligence, and at the end of the day, it's human intelligence that really drives the effort to
a violent protests. an agreement was reached with lonmin earlier this week. the united states says that china has apologized for allowing a group of protesters to vandalize the u.s. ambassador's car. it was pelted with objects and flag was damaged. beijing says it is investigating the incident. while a video continues to fuel protest, one of the actors it is filminsuing the film maker for . she says she was told she was appearing in and adventure film based in egypt. to what is believed to be the case of a u.k. soldier giving birth to a baby on the frontline. she gave birth just days after the area came under attack from the taliban. it was a bit of a surprise because she did not know she was pregnant. >> the soldier from the royal artillery has been serving in afghanistan since march. two days ago, she complained of severe stomach pains. her son was delivered safely at the field hospital. he was born prematurely during the 34th week of her pregnancy. the specialist pediatric team from the hospital will now travel to camp to help provide care to the soldier and her baby on their fl
for this is the books are conceived as a history of the united states sort of as told through biographies and i was looking for a woman subject for one of these and in fact i found one but my publisher wouldn't let me do it. can you guess what woman i was looking for and found? eleanor roosevelt. i mean, just the fact that it's a very short list of women who played a large role in american public life on whom i can hang a tale of four or five decades of american history. women have had of course their roles in private life but it is in the nature of private life it usually doesn't survive in the historical record. why did people start saving the letters of eleanor roosevelt? because she was important. do your correspondence save your letters that you write to them and then do they deposit them in the local historical society? well, maybe, and if they do you will become, can i use my words adviseably, here, you will become literally immortal. you will become immortal in letters because future historians will find those letters. they will say ah, that is what life was like at the beginning of the
for half of our fellow american americans is the other side's choice for president of the united states. he wants to lead our country. in 2008, then candidate obama spurred similar controversy when he was caught on tape at a fund-raiser making these comments about conservative voters. >> it's not surprising then that they get bitter. they cling to their guns or religion or antipathy towards people who aren't like them. >> now, of course, all of this is coming as romney is trying to talk about jobs. that's the point he was making here in los angeles. chamber of commerce, when he spoke to that group yesterday. this is a distraction now for him. he heads off to utah and texas. he has fund-raisers there. >> how troubled are they by this? >> they think this is unfortunate. not so much his underlying point, which doesn't really contradict his campaign message, but the way he said it. there's no plans now to really back off this, issue an apology. because it does kind of square with a lot of romney's message, which is that the president has a campaign that wants more government, big government. an
's a crude film. they know it has nothing to do with the united states government. it is an excuse. one intelligence person told me, if you scratch the surface, and if you gave every street vendor from street vendor to prime minister in that region a chance to throw a rock at the u.s. embassy, they would. so this is their excuse. >> look at what's happening in afghanistan 11 years later. >> and look what's happening in afghanistan. and is it just me? willie, is it just me, or is it -- we have the grave concern about the tragedy that happened to the ambassador and our people that have served so proudly for, you know, for the state department who were killed. and yet this weekend, more u.s. troops in afghanistan gunned down by our supposed allies. this happens every day. this happens every day. and yes, our u.s. ambassador being killed is just absolutely horrific. but every single day, young american men and women are gunned down in afghanistan. >> 51 of them this year on insider attacks. 51 nato troops including many americans this year. >> nobody's talking about it. >> to your point exa
first. so of not red or blue states, what the united states. i no they're not that many football fans here today. my first story about president obama has to do with football. he was the last interview that i did for my book. i interviewed three andrew and 50 people will for him and traveled the world. i thought about what i would -- how i would break the ice with him for a long time. i remembered that he is a bears fan than i am a pakistan and that two years ago when the packers played the bears in the nfc championship game president obama announced that if the bears won he was going to the super bowl. the packers won. and the star player on the packers after the game got up on the table of the jesse berman said, president obama will come see us, but we're right to go see him at his house meeting if you win the super bowl you to visit the white house. this was their star quarterback, so when i finally got my interview with president obama and shook his hand and said, mr. president, charles got here before me, but i'm glad we both finally made it. he said, yeah, man, those packers wer

in jerusalem for us tonight, and rick the prime minister saying he will not wait for the united states to use force against iran and may not wait for the presidential election either. >> right, harris, the prime minister says he's not guided by the american political calendar, but by the the iranian nuclear calendar and he says israel has the right to defend itself against any threat and he says tehran is racing to build an atom bomb and that the u.s. needs to act with more urgency because time is running out and compares iran to the militants attacking u.s. embassies across the middle east, north africa and that iran puts it ahead of survival and suicide bombers, quote, all offer the place and says it will be a grave mistake not to stop that before it's too late. >> and you have the nuclear weapons, and you have countries that have access to nuclear weapons, and always made a careful calculation and cost and benefit, but iran is guided by a leadership that-- with an unbelievable fanaticism. the same fanaticism you see storm the embassy today. >> netanyahu insisting on a deadline for iran or
to make it official. >> i accept your nomination for president of the united states. >> he says this election isn't just about him. he says it's a choice. >> on every issue, the choice you face won't just be between two candidates or two parties. it will be a choice between two different paths for america. >> and the president says the republicans have only one path. >> have a surplus? try a tax cut. deficit too high? try another. feel a cold coming on? take two tax cuts, roll back some regulations and call us in the morning. >> in his acceptance speech, vice president biden stuck to the line which has almost become a catch phrase for him. >> osama bin laden is dead and general motors is alive. >> democrats hope the energy and momentum of these last three days will carry forward now that the conventions are over and the fall campaign begins. the president says this election is still about hope. >> if you share that hope with me, i ask you tonight for your vote. >> and vice president biden says americans never lost faith. >> you never quit on america. and you deserve a president
present to the rest of the world. no act of violence shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >> and the president is on the case and sent two u.s. warships to the libyan coast and marines into tripoli and the fbi has opened an investigation into the attack that killed those four americans. contrast that with what mitt romney did today, campaigning i >> as we watch the world today, sometimes it seems that we're at the mercy of events instead of shaping events and a strong america is to shape events and a strong america, by the way, depends on a strong military. this president has done something i find very hard to understand. ever since fdr, we've had the capacity to be engaged in two conflicts at once and he's saying, no, we're going to cut that back to only one conflict. >> joe klein, thank you. because you have a big picture look of this. what is mitt romney talking about that is relevant to aour ability to deal with the group of militants in a place like benghazi that go against the embassy or going against the embassy and ambassadors of the embassy itself in cairo, be eg
, perhaps even the first latino president of the united states. he knows full well why he was picked to give this speech. in his words he said, i'm young, and i'm hispanic. >> hey, everybody. i'm julian castro. >> reporter: first thing you need to know, it's pronounced julian castro. the j is silent. not julian. but even if you get the spanish wrong, don't worry. san antonio's mayor has never mastered spanish either. >> i understand it better than i speak it. i grew up in my household with my mother and grandmother mostly speaking english. i understand it, but speaking it back is always the challenge. >> reporter: julian castro's grandmother immigrated from mexico and worked in the chicano movement in san antonio. from the humble beginnings, julian and his twin brother went on to stanford university and harvard law school. now he is a rising star in the democratic party, tapped to give the keynote speech at the democratic convention, the same speech an unknown barack obama gave at the convention in 2004. >> you get talked about as someone who could be the first hispanic governor of texas. so
forces by the date certain that the united states is going to depart. if you stop the recruitment and revet all of the troops you would extend the amount of time before the united states reaches the level where it should say to the military that it's time for us to depart. but the united states says we're going to leave at this date. so the concern would be are you now going to try to accelerate the recruitment and training. the vetting process itself works well it just hasn't been enforce ed. >> do you think that perhaps there is a possibility that the u.s. will pull out earlier? >> no, i don't think so. not at all. i think what's important is the united states and nato have demonstrated a partnership with the afghans that is really unprecedented and unmatched. the united states is going to lean into the wind. they're not going to back off because we have got this trouble spot. they are instituting the rules and regulations they have in place. they are being more aggressive about those and they are also instituting a couple of extra steps in that there might be what is known as t
a nuclear weapon. of course the united states and israel has gone back and forth when and if a strike is necessary. the united states secretary of state sat down with prime minister netanyahu yesterday for a meeting. that is not the meeting that the prime minister wanted. he did want to meet with president obama. requested a meeting. that was request was denied. the prime minister offered to fly to washington, d.c. today to meet with president obama. we learned he is spending much of the day at campaign events. back in israel, we look again at the newspaper. not all the reaction is positive. next to the prime minister drawing on the diagram of the bomb is a headline a little bit making fun of him saying bebe, the prime minister's nickname, boom. one headline down here. they have had a caricature of him as bugs bunny drawing on the same diagram, calling the diagram a cartoon. there is feeling among some, doing that at united nations holding up the diagram and drawing the red line was perhaps not fitting the prime minister of israel. gregg? gregg: leland vittert in jerusalem. thank you
and describe why i think i'm the person that will become the next president of the united states and how my policies will make life better for american families. >> reporter: romney has had trouble getting that message across. the obama campaign is far outspending him in advertising and swing states and the media conservatives say is bias against them and in our interview romney declined to take what would be an easy shot. >> do you think the mainstream media is in the tank for president obama? >> we have free press and they're able to provide their perspectives based on their beliefs. there are people more on my camp and a lot of people more on his camp and i don't worry about that. >> reporter: campaigning wednesday in ohio, president obama had no trouble being critical of his opponent and evening converting a verbal misstep to an attack on romney. >> i want to see us export more jobs -- export more products, excuse me. i was i was channeling my opponent there for a second. >> reporter: now the president is out with another new ad today and it looks almost like he's trying to one-up romne

see the center of the storm passing east of bermuda. it is not a direct let to the united states but even so we are not at tin the path. some people can still feel the effects. maria molina is in the weather center. >> people living across new england and down to the mid atlantic will feel it. it is a large storm system. fortunately it has not strengthened can iing santly. it remained a tropical storm. we have had dry air working its way toward the center of the system. it is very large it goes 500 miles from one end to the other end of the storm. that is why it is difficult for less leslie to try to strengthen. it spared bermuda from the worst of the storms through out the day today. those conditions should begin to improve as we pull away from the storms. 60 miles to the north and 14 miles per hour through the storm this far north in latitude. back when we were talking about land fall in far eastern portions of land fall. hair lice like we mentioned we are not expecting any precipitation but dangerous conditions will be possible for rip current and dangerous conditions for boat

that the united states is engaged in a war with islam and that the west is against islam. it's something that western politicians don't like to talk about and don't like to address. but it's what fuels the anger and the rage. and they're able to exploit that very easily, as was evidenced in libya. and that ideology is what is dangerous. so although one particular group may have been involved in planning the attack, the ideology fueling that kind of attack has come from a different place. and it's all over the world. it's a global threat. and some intelligence officials say it's not being dealt with aadequately. >> lara, that's an interesting piece in "the wall street journal" this morning about the ultra conservative islamist group that is a target of u.s. and libyan inquiries, the worry about this threatening the arab spring. how does this change u.s. policy in the middle east, since we've got protests in libya, egypt and now yemen this morning? >> u.s. policy in the middle east has been something of a roll of the dice since the arab spring began. it's been very clear to u.s. officials
